As the alcohol ecommerce world continues to expand, Drizly has announced a no-cost concierge service staffed by alcohol and event planning professionals.
It’s meant to help consumers figure out guest count and budget, customized drink ideas aligned with themes and seasons, and everything else that matters to planners.
Drizly has named the service White Glove Weddings.
The White Glove Weddings team coordinates all the alcohol shopping, through 5,000-plus stores in Drizly’s nationwide network.
Retailers then provide delivery to the wedding or party venue.
To get stated, fill out a form that covers all the planning bases. Within 24 hours, a personalized recommendation from a White Glove Weddings concierge arrives in your inbox, along with an invitation to consult further.
And when the party’s over, the team can also help arrange refunds for anything that went unused and can be returned.
“Let’s face it, getting your hands around alcohol planning for the big events like weddings can be daunting and entirely new for so many of us,” says Kim Hedmark, who heads up White Glove at Drizly. “Our team has the expertise to calculate the right quantities for guest list size, the power to please everyone by tapping the biggest selection and best prices, the peace-of-mind-giving, time-saving convenience of arranging delivery right to the venue, along with so many other considerations.”
The team can build lists of alcohol brands that are Black-, AAPI-, women- and LGBTQ+-owned. Drizly can also guide brides and grooms preferring to shop with small, local producers.
